CLASS program wins international award
November 18, 2014 – Salina Public Library’s Community Learning and Skill Sharing program was selected for a 2014 Learning Resources Network (LERN) International Award for best brochure in the category of Innovative Practice in Business and Industry.
CLASS was selected from more than 140 applicants from across North America. The award recognizes exemplary marketing, program development, management and brochure design for a lifelong learning program. Originality, innovation, appropriateness and adaptability as a model for other programs, and measurable outcomes were weighed in judging award entries.
Morgan Davis, Community Learning Coordinator, submitted the program’s fall 2014 catalog to illustrate how design was used to promote the addition of CLASS 4 Kids.
CLASS connects skilled community members with audiences seeking to learn something new. There is a fall and a spring semester and a summer intersession each year. Courses offered have included cooking, art, language and wellness. The next CLASS catalog will be available Jan. 12.
